You're OK: Oral sex is safe sex for HIV, with no proved transmissions by fellatio from mouth to penis, only rare ones penis to oral. You didn't need testing on account of this event and for sure not the multiple expensive ones you had. But the results from that combination of tests are conclusive. For sure you didn't catch HIV during that exposure and no further testing is needed. Best wishes and stay safe! ...Read more

Polymerase Chain Reaction (Definition)

Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more

Would a urine PCR test is sufficient for detection of chlamydia trachomatis for women or have a chance for false negative result?

Would a urine PCR test is sufficient for detection of chlamydia trachomatis for women or have a chance for false negative result?

Chlamydia: I know of no good provider who would use urine testing for chlamydia in women. Chlamydia infects the cervix and other vaginal tissue. It is not found normally in the bladder or urethra in women.

So, a urine test in women is the incorrect test. ...Read more

Would taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for 2 days make me falsely negative for Chlamydia? It was a PCR test.

Would taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for 2 days make me falsely negative for Chlamydia? It was a PCR test.

Probably not: Sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (Bactrim) can suppress chlamydia, so it could lead to a false negative test result. However, 2 days is too soon. Even with the most effective antibiotics against chlamydia (e.g., doxycycline, azithromycin) it usually takes a few days for DNA tests (like PCR) to become negative. So your result probably is reliable. But if in doubt, discuss with the doctor or clinic. ...Read more

Hello doctor, assume, a man has lgv and test only c.Trachomatis IgG or c.Trachomatis pcr, should result come positive for chlamydia?

Rough disease: The diagnosis of lymphogranuloma venereum is primarily clinical. If my labs were equivocal or even nonsupportive but I was concerned that I had it, I would undergo the full, long course of treatment. I'd be interested in hearing from the infectious disease folks as well. ...Read more

Is there a specific test to culture chlamydia? I want to know what Rx it's sensitive to. I tested + PCR semen, but rx not helping at all. Culture was-

No need: As discussed previously, your chlamydia PCR test probably was falsely positive and chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis. Also, chlamydia is ALWAYS susceptible to the same antibiotics, like the tetracyclines and azithromycin. There is never a need to test it for antibiotic sensitivity. ...Read more

June last year I was tested negative for chlamydia (PCR). 2 weeks ago I got IgG positive, IgM negative. Does that mean I was infected in the meantime?

Chlamydia antibody: Your blood test results are consistent with your past chlamydial infection. However, the blood test only detects antibody (the immune response to infection), not chlamydia itself. Once positive, the IgG blood test is positive for many years, often for life. To know if you currently have chlamydia, you'll need another PCR-type test from the vagina or a urine specimen. ...Read more

Chronic pelvic pain?: Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis, and is rarely acquired by oral sex -- maybe false positive test? Maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome, or genital anxiety, not true prostatitis. You've been asking repeated questions. Follow your doctor's advice, or see an infectious diseases specialist or urologist. Your situation is too complex for a forum like this; don't expect any further advice. Good luck. ...Read more

Negative urine PCR. Positive chlamydia semen PCR. Any difference regarding treatment? Can infection spread to other parts? (i.e my left stomach hurts)

Negative urine PCR. Positive chlamydia semen PCR. Any difference regarding treatment? Can infection spread to other parts? (i.e my left stomach hurts)

Tissue specific: Your chlamydia likes to live in certain tissues, like the linings of your urinary tract. It is not going to go from there into your stomach (tissue is different).You can feel bad when you are sick, as a non-specific symptom, and the common treatment for chlamydia, azithromycin can cause GI upset or cramping in some patients. ...Read more

I had PCR test done and regular blood work for hsv1 and I was negative. Never had a sore. I recently did regular blood work now hsv1 is positive.?

I had PCR test done and regular blood work for hsv1 and I was negative. Never had a sore. I recently did regular blood work now hsv1 is positive.?

Typical: Not sure why "regular blood work" would include HSV1, but becoming positive without having any symptoms or signs of infection is very common. Most people who test positive can't really say when they might have been infected. Very unlikely to be infectious if no sores present, but most prudent would inform potential intimates--from kissers to lovers. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I had an HBV DNA PCR test and it came out to be 13 iu/ml...Is it a matter of tension? My lft and other tests come out to be positive although

Hepatitis B: Having a positive hbv dna and "other tests positive" in general means you have hepatitis b. This is not do to tension. Without knowing the specifics of your other blood tests and overall condition, I would see your liver specialist to see if you need treatment or if you can just have your liver tests checked every few months. ...Read more
